Check out what rolled into Union Station this past weekend....a real, live steam engine! This train was massive and immaculate, polished to a shine. It was only here for a few days so we went to check it out yesterday afternoon after I got home from my trip. I wasn't sure we could get very close to it, so I didn't bring my real camera - wish I had!
The steam train pulled out of town early this morning - but not before blowing the whistle quite a few times. It was a very startling way to wake up and scared Charlie. I'm glad to be home, 5 days felt like a long time. Feeling pretty tired, but hoping a few days at home will help me gather steam for the next trip later this week.
